This awesome web site offers content – and tons of it – with a style and flair that can only be described as “big city.” But the Big Apple harnesses the power of the Internet to communicate with, inform, and service without any of the intimidation that big city government might otherwise impose. One of the best municipal web sites we’ve seen to date, New York City’s home page features up-to-the-minute news, links to its most popular features – e.g., live traffic cams, online property tax payment, and the Staten Island Ferry schedule, to name a few – a toolbox of online forms, links to the offices of elected officials, and highlights of current goings-on in the City. From what to bring along to the City Clerk’s office to apply for a marriage license to evaluating the annual financial performance of the City Housing Agency, it’s all here in this exemplary web site.
